Surviving Sandy



We were pretty shocked to see that the bolt was still in the latch, completely sheared off of it’s holding on the wooden side of the gate!  




I tried to pull the gate shut against the wind while Roy was checking out the sheared piece of metal and could hardly budge that gate against the gusts that were blowing!  Pretty awesome!  Thankfully Roy was there to push it from the other side!


We did lose power, but were thoroughly prepared this time around!  I even had it worked out how I would spend my evenings!



When the going gets tough, the tough start spinning!  I was able to start spinning the grey roving I had processed by Fibers 4 Ewe earlier this year from our spring shear!  I’m very excited to be making yarn for the first time from our farm’s wool!


We thank God that we were spared serious damage or loss of life on our farm this time around, and we offer our prayers for those who were not so blessed and suffered losses of life or property from Hurricane Sandy.  May God be with them as they heal and rebuild.
